TOPIC: Principles and Practices of Green Burial in North America


North Americans are now more open to considering non-traditional and greener options for final disposition.

Erik Lees combines his background and experience in cemetery management and operations to deliver an interactive session sharing extensive knowledge, research, proposed applications and ideas for green burial. A complete analysis of a “Green Burial Matrix” will assist attendees in building a catalogue of existing and proposed green burial sites in North America guiding funeral professionals in recognition and addressing of change in the future.

Joe Sehee is a leading advocate of the Green Burial Movement in the United States. Joe is the executive director of the Green Burial Council, an organization he founded to encourage sustainability in the death care industry and to use the burial process as a means of facilitating ecological restoration and landscape level conservation.

The objective of this training 3 hour session is equip attendees with:

  • a thorough understanding of the history, origin and genesis of the green burial movement
  • a familiarity with the 5 primary principles of green burial
  • an understanding of the operational criteria and challenges of green burial cemeteries
  • planning and design skills which address the challenges of green burial cemeteries

Never taken an online seminar before?

Online Seminars include: Viewing PowerPoint slides and computer demonstrations via the Internet from your personal computer. Interactive features such as polling (allowing you to respond online to speaker questions) and a simple online “chat” feature that lets you key in your questions for the speaker.

How Do I Participate? It’s easy! Approximately one week before the event, you will receive an email from the organizers with information about joining the teleconference or web seminar and downloading handouts.

What Are The Minimum Requirements? All you need to participate is an email address, internet access, and a computer with speakers or if you do not have speakers you can use your telephone to dial into the webinar but long distance charges may apply. These online seminars integrate audio conferencing and web-based presentations that feature an expert educator in an interactive experience. They run directly in your web browser, allowing you to “gather” together and easily communicate with others no matter your geographic location. Participants can log/dial in from anywhere – work, home or even a hotel room – to attend.

Eligibility for Continuing Education Credits? To be eligible to receive your Continuing Education Credits, you must register under your own name and have a dedicated computer with an Internet connection, and attend and participate the entire online seminar. Participation will be measured by 4 criteria:

  • Registration in licensee name
  • On-time arrival for seminar
  • Participation in Online Polls
  • Attendance monitoring*
  • Post seminar survey completion

* Attendance monitoring is part of the GoToWebinar technology that monitors if the participant has the seminar window active, meaning that the participant has not opened other computer programs – such as checking emails, using chat programs, or surfing other websites. Sharing computers is not permitted as the above criteria cannot be measured. The following are scenarios that are NOT permitted:

  • Two licensees sharing the same computer
  • One licensee sharing the computer with administration staff or other staff members who need it for tasks for the funeral home
